Johnny Cash will be the first artist to be honored by the United States Postal Service’s new “Music Icons” series of stamps.
According to the USPS, Cash’s stamp is the first of three to be announced. The other two will be revealed later this year.
Known as “The Man in Black” for his traditionally dark colored clothing, Cash is known as a country music icon whose deep baritone-bass impacted various genres and led to his inclusion into not only the Country Music Hall of Fame, but the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Gospel Music Hall of Fame as well.
He died of complications due to diabetes in 2003.
